Residential - Our Process
Our installation process
Step 1 | Book an assessment
Each of our projects begins with a quick conversation between you and a member of our assessment team to find out which solar products are the right fit for your home. We need to find out about your current household energy systems, and take a peek at your roof using our state of the art satellite imagery software.
Once we have an idea of what your needs are, we will work with you to find a time when you are home to come and meet with you in person, and take some measurements.
Step 2 | Solar Assessment
Most houses are good candidates for solar power, although, there are always exceptions. Our solar assessment experts will find and resolve any issues during the site visit.
Once site visit is complete, we’ll take our information back to the Doctor Solar headquarter to commence designing a custom system, tailored to your specific needs.
Step 3 | Sign Contract
Once we’ve crunched the numbers, we will send you a design and installation proposal that’s tailored to your home. After you’ve approved the proposal and signed a contract, it’s time to book an install.
The majority of solar installations only take one day to complete, which is nice because hopefully you won’t have to disrupt your schedule too much to accommodate us.
Step 4 | Book the Install
Once you've signed a contract, its time to book an install. We will work with you to find a time when you can be at your home while we install your solar system. The majority of solar installations only take one day to complete, which is nice because it means that you won't have to disrupt your schedule too much to accommodate us.
Step 5 | System Installation
Our crew will arrive at your home in the morning to greet you and get the install underway. The crew supervisor will explain what we intend to do throughout the day and find out if you have any specific rules you would like us to follow while working around your home. Every install begins with a comprehensive site check and safety assessment, ensuring our awareness of the specific environment.
We will start by installing temporary roof anchor points, which act as attachment points for our fall arrest gear. The rest of the day is spent installing the panels, the line run, and doing any plumbing or electrical work required.
Step 6 | Commission the System
Now that the system is installed, its time to fire it up, go over our work with you and answer any questions about the system that you might have. We take this opportunity to show you what you need to know to get the most out of your system and go through the warrantee documentation and user manual with you.
